Photo Request: 1series, non-lowered with 19"

Thanks in advance. Please indicate the tire size / wheel offset with you pictures. I'm thinking about getting a set of VMR V701 19" for my 135. I am not looking to lower the car as it has to serve family duties. I am concerned about aesthetics since 225/245 front/rear tire setup will actually produce a slightly larger diameter than stock.
I searched the forums but most cars with 19" are lowered as well.

Other option is 18" VMR V701s but I don't think I will gain much visually. Basically, I'm looking to keep my OEM wheels for winter and since I'm getting something for summer, get something that will enhance the look of the car.

DPE SP10's 19x8.5 and 19x10 offsets aren't released by DPE but you can assume that the front is probably around et45 and the rear is between et52-55 I think. Tires Nitto Invos 235/35 and 265/30. Not the greatest pics but here ya go....oh and I am not lowered

This is the same exact setup I am about to do to my car as well. Thanks for asking. I'll hopefully be ordering mine in the next week or so and will definitely add pics after I get them installed.

It's an iCarbon Diffuser, not the Performance. Though my side skirts are Performance. Here you go.

Suspension is stock. No rubbing unless I hit a dip a bit too fast. Even then, just a bit. Thanks for the compliments.

Reviving an old thread that helped me with my current setup!

DCR Forged Nurburgring

BMW 128i - E88 - Matte Metallic Black

Front: 19 x 8.5 +45 // Michelin Pilot Sport A/S3+ 225/40/19

Rubbing only on aggressive bumps at high speeds or when there's 4 people in the car.
